It’s week four of the pre-packaged meal plan diet. This morning, the scale said I’m at my halfway mark. I only have two weeks remaining on the clock so it’s unlikely I’ll hit my goal, but I may get within a few pounds.
The upside has been that one coworker asked me if I lost weight today and another said I was looking “younger”. The downside is the crappy food. It’s edible, but not memorable or enjoyable – a tragedy for a foodie. My favorites are the red beans and rice with chicken sausage and the white chocolate macadamia nut cookie.
Once I’m done, which should be right around Valentine’s Day, I start on “weight maintenance”. It’s funny how the meal plan people don’t tell you much about how to go about doing that. I guess if all the customers were able to lose and then manage their weight, the meal plan folks would go out of business rather quickly.
